7/16    Does WindowsXP have a Print-to-PDF functionality built-in?
        \_ haha is this a serious question - that's like asking
            do we have to pay for each piece of commercial software?
           \_ exactly. if it were built-in, then adobe wouldn't be charging
              $150 for acrobat 6.0.
                \_ macs have it built in and adobe still sells acrobat for
                   os x.  Acrobat does a lot more than just convert to PDF.
        \_ Your best bet is probably print to ps and then use ps2pdf. But
           Adobe really is the gold standard ... they make "better" pdf
           than anyone else (ps2pdf, pdflatex, etc.) ... smaller, cleaner.

2/5     I like Adobe Flash. When written correctly, it scales along
        with your browser size. It looks consistent on every single
        browser. It is predictable. On the other hand, I'm not a big
        fan of CSS/HTML, which for the most part, look wildly different
        between browsers, and don't even work consistently or
        correctly at times. So why do so many people (like Steve Jobs)

8/26    Any suggestions on a good OCR program for either OS X or Windows that
        will work on scanned documents outputted to pdf?  Preferably free?
        Thanks, scottyg
        \_ Check Abbyy or Scansoft.  Not free.
           \_ Thanks...I think I'd prefer a free or opensource piece of
              software unless there is a huge difference in quality.  I

8/31    I'm trying to learn ActionScript, like a step by step tutorial.
        The site at http://www.actionscript.org/resources/categories/Tutorials/Flash/Beginner
        isn't well organized. It doesn't explain how to get started with
        an editor, compiler, IDE. And should I even learn AS2 when you can
        learn AS3? Is Adobe Flash CS4 >>> CS3 or just CS4 > CS3?

3/26    Anyone here uses Heritrix?  I'm trying to read the Intro document at
        http://crawler.archive.org/An%20Introduction%20to%20Heritrix.pdf but
        both Adobe Reader 8.1.3 (Win32) and gv 3.6.5 (cygwin) display error
        messages and show me blank pages.  Adobe displays:
        "Cannot extract the embedded font 'FTXWSG+TimesNewRomanMS'.  Some
        characters may not display or print correctly."

3/11    I have a potential gig at a large(ish) magazine that wants to setup
        a system like this to put a digital edition of their issues online:
        http://www.exacteditions.com
        There are many services out there that do this, and in fact they are
        currently using one. But they'd like to save money by moving this
        in-house. They're starting with PDF files and want to display them

11/2    I'm thinking about buying Adobe Lightroom 2. I understand that
        registration today is very much online driven. Does anyone know
        if purchase is limited to registering to ONE computer only?
        What if I reinstall Winblow (which I do every 12-18 months),
        will I lose the license?
        \_ there is no license.
